MY GOOD HANS

Director and scriptwriter - Alexander Mindadze

Exceptionally private, full of emotional experiences story of an engineer Hans F. who arrived with a business trip to USSR on the eve of World War II (autumn of 1940 Р spring of 1941). The plot is based on the real life events of prewar period, on the memories of its direct participants. As a matter of fact the film represents little known blank spot of the European history when soon after the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact had been signed a short period of friendship, close collaboration and exchange of specialists started between USSR and Germany - before these two countries confronted each other in the mortal combat.
